There can be several reasons for this. It would help to know if your phone is rooted and which tethering program is being used.

The basic reason may be as simple as something needing to be checked because of the processor on your phone.

My first question would be the same as sherongb... what tethering app is your friend using?

Some apps use Ad-Hoc mode, and I have not been able to get my Stratosphere to see any Ad-Hoc networks... Perhaps he could try FoxFi, it uses Infrastructure mode and allows for security, DHCP, MAC filtering, etc. pretty nice app for rooted phones actually.

Have not rooted my phone and have tried FoxFi. It will work for 2 or 3 minutes then, although it still shows it's connected, it doesn't work. Not sure if I am missing something but am looking for any tips you can share for that program.

Guess I haven't had any problems, just activated it, set a WPA2 password and it just works... don't use it a lot but when I do it just works and I have used it for 20-30 minutes at a time with no problems.

No the phone is not rooted. It's a Samsung stratosphere. My friend tried downloading foxfi and it doesn't work on his lg esteem.
